Generations Morning Tea

Friday, 17 March

Loreto Normanhurst has a proud tradition of generations of families entrusting their daughters and, for many years also their sons, to our school for their education.

To celebrate these generations of connection we warmly invite any parent or relative of a current student who has attended a Loreto school to join us on Friday, 17 March for our Generations Morning Tea.

If you are one of our alumnae or your parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or godparent attended any Loreto school in the world, we would love to have you join us for Communion and morning tea in the Reception Room to celebrate the generations of connection that run through our community.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP here or contact Lauren Kirkby, Community Relations and Events Manager via events@loretonh.nsw.edu.au.

Jessica Coblentz is an assistant professor in the Department of Religious Studies and Theology at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana (USA), where her teaching and research focus on Catholic systematic theology, feminist theologies, and mental health in theological perspective.

In addition to her contributions to numerous academic journals and essay collections, her writing has been featured in popular venues such the National Catholic Reporter, US Catholic, America, and Give Us This Day, where she is a regular contributor. Before working as a theologian, Coblentz served for several years in Roman Catholic national and diocesan religious education, parish young adult ministry, and college campus ministry. She earned her PhD in systematic theology from Boston College.
